A soft spoken, intellectual liberal's thought process is, our country is world's super power, rich country but 50 million people are without a basic insurance, 18,000 people dying without a proper insurance per year, hmm..what is the solution? As always, liberals want to address this by providing a government sponsored, a well funded, a perfect public health care to all citizen. In long run, they want to integrate all into one universal insurance, 100% funded by government.
A well mannered, easily spark towards any new reforms conservatives, opposing this plan on every town hall meeting. They are getting a sizable support from senior citizens and business people. They are pointing out the source of funding, already U.S government spent trillions of trillion for economy and deficit is higher than any other time, GM and some banks are under government watch. The situation is not good for any reform for now and 180 million citizens are happy with current plan so do senior citizen with current Medicare plan. I didn't understand why they are comparing this reform with Nazi Germany and Hitler.
The PHI is getting very complicated and even President Obama start talking about his grandmother's death because of without proper insurance. As far as my experience with health care system here at U.S.A, it is very expensive like any other countries. But here due to the lawsuits, the defense tests and treatment cost is very higher than any other countries. For example, if you go to emergency room for a headache you end up paying more to just some CT scan/x-ray, blood test etc, which are not required for a headache.
I think the solution for this is a compromise between right and left. We can't always achieve 100% on everything, so a semi public company like Freddie Mac is answer for this. The insurance can be continue purchased from a primary market (Aetna, Blue Cross etc) but they can sell to secondary market(a Freddie Mac kind of company). In order to qualify for public health insurance, employers and individuals have to pass some basic requirements. In other words, with the current choice of HMO,PPO etc, insurance companies can offer PHI. This sounds less complicated, aren't they?

Here my post, I’m concentrate on weight gain after quit smoking and how to reduce it. After quit smoking, we tend eat more which is unavoidable. As per my opinion, don’t stop it, eat as much as we can and gaining 10-20 lbs doesn’t matter, what matter is 1000+ chemicals from smoking. When I quit smoking I was ranging between 180 lbs to 190 lbs, but after quit smoking it raised to 220 lbs. After a month and half, regular exercise and diet now my weight is 199 lbs. I’m not writing this for my self pride, there are some out there still smoking thinking about weight gain after quit smoking.
1. Addict to one type of food, meaning if you like Pizza means eat more and more pizza as replacement for smoking.
2. Always set a threshold for weight gain and check periodically weight.
3. Once reached the threshold weight, stop eating “smoking replacement food”. We can’t stop it as cold turkey, one day don’t eat your favorite food rather eat subway and next day eat less favorite fatty food like wise stop it completely.
4. Drink 5-6 green tea but last cup should be before 5.00PM to avoid insomnia.
5. Morning or evening 15-20 mins brisk walking or jogging is must, first it hurts a lot because of over weight but after 2-3 weeks all will be okay.
6. Eat half filling and have remaining stomach for fruits and juice.
7. No ice cream, snacks and beer.
8. Drink Red Wine which is really great for burning extra fat.
Have fun, happy weight loss
